Date Rape

The is just something that I have been thinking about since an episode of “Harry’s Law” a decent enough show, just needs Denny Crane! The following is only an opinion and after all everyone is entitled to at least one, opinion that is.

I really hate this trivial name for the horrible crime of slipping something into usually a woman’s drink to render her insensate or unconscious. I really have no idea why in the world anyone would want to have sex with an unconscious or unresponsive woman. I would hope that there are only a few animals that would do this. I can not think of any really foul adjectives to describe this. First I would change the name to something more fitting. Felony chemical battery and rape seems much more fitting. I mean I have had some bad dates but to drug someone, I just don’t know.

A recent episode of “Harry’s Law” had this hypocrite fellow that claimed a young woman put something in his drink and raped him. They did the best job they could, the writers that is, but this moron went was at a bar, had drinks and then went home with the woman. He then went into her home for drinks and after a few drinks that he claimed were doctored it seems that she forced herself on him. He really did not want to commit adultery after all and she would not accept no for an answer. I can not feel any sympathy for this idiot even if she did slip him a Viagra. He had no business being with her in the first place. I know it was only a television show but seriously.

Now I have to admit I was in London some years ago. I went on this romantic trip with another guy’s girlfriend. It probably is an amusing story and I may write about it after I have had a couple, but I digress, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I was out one night and looking for some companionship. I met this woman and she suggested that we get some drinks and get to know each other better. I thought that was a fine idea. She did not want to go to a bar, her idea was to get a bottle and go to the apartment where I was staying. Oddly enough there are strange alcohol laws even in London. It was illegal to buy booze after 10:00 PM.

Did I care, no way; I slipped the guy in the turban behind the counter a few extra quid and he put a nice bottle of vodka in a brown paper bag. I guess that makes me an international criminal. Anyway we took one of those fabulous London cabs to the apartment and unfortunately all she was really interested in was the booze. Not wanting to make an even bigger fool of myself I suggested that she take the vodka and go home. My traveling companion thought the whole situation very amusing. For someone insecure like me, a little alcohol might help make both parties more relaxed but passing out or puking on your date is not the best way to make a good impression.

Since I am quickly becoming retired from this whole game I find it depressing that the already difficult and complicated affair of adult interaction made even more difficult with the help of the government. I can imagine a day when meeting someone will have to be negotiated by lawyers and contracts. There was a silly movie called “Cherry 2000” that depicted just that. Well at least I am feeling a little better now.
